Vermont Community Foundation Promotes Stacie Fagan to VP for Philanthropy
The Vermont Community Foundation is pleased to announce the promotion of Stacie Fagan, who has worked since May 2018 as a senior philanthropic advisor at the statewide foundation, to vice president for philanthropy.
In her new role, Fagan will oversee all aspects of the Community Philanthropy group, which helps fundholders find and fund the causes they love. Fagan also will be a member of the Vermont Community Foundation’s senior management team.
“Since joining the Community Foundation, Stacie has very quickly demonstrated her formidable knowledge of how philanthropy strengthens, enriches, and builds communities, and the positive impact that potential funders hope to have on the lives of their fellow Vermonters,” said Dan Smith, president and CEO of the Vermont Community Foundation. “We’re looking forward to Stacie’s continued leadership as we work together to close the opportunity gap in Vermont.”
Fagan has extensive experience leading philanthropic initiatives for public service, educational, and environmental organizations. Prior to joining the Vermont Community Foundation, Fagan was the vice president for development at Vermont PBS, directing the organization’s revenue strategy efforts as a member of the management team. She’s also held leadership positions at the American Wind Wildlife Institute, Environmental Defense Fund, Naropa University, Middlebury College, and her alma mater St. Lawrence University.
In addition to the B.A. in Economics and Environmental Studies she earned from St. Lawrence, Fagan has participated in the Snelling Leadership Institute and the University of Vermont’s Leadership and Management certificate program. A resident of Shelburne, she serves on the board of directors for the King Street Center in Burlington and on St. Lawrence University’s Alumni Executive Council.
